Am I in the wrong or is this something I should complain about?

Today I was shopping at Walmart and was accused of coupon fraud and stealing merchandise while using valid manufacturer's coupons. I feel as though the way I was treated was unacceptable, but I'm not sure if I'm the one in the wrong or not. [more inside]

My Debit Card was compromised, now what?

I had to get a new card on Saturday. On Monday, I purchased something on the internet. Today, someone spent 1300 of my bucks on something called "educational services" in New Delhi, while I sit here on the east coast of America. The bank says not to worry. But should I? [more inside]

Someone is intentionally attacking me & my family online.

Someone has created a site via Google Sites that is radically defaming myself and my family. We're not talking about a 12 year playing a prank. It's a systematic attack with the most egregious accusations one can imagine. They're parroting my personal business site and posting info that is not only libelous, but fantastically horrible. The junk they've posted about myself, my wife and our two small children is heartbreaking. We believe we know who it is (but have no proof) and have contacted the FBI on advice of a lawyer. They've told us they'll call us once they get jurisdiction figured out and the cybercrime guys take a look. The kind SAIC looked at the site and understood the problem but only got the ball in motion. That could take weeks/months for them to move on this and the site needs to come down, now. HOW?

Can't determine if this is a fraudulent email or not...

I received an email at ~4:30 PM (EST) from a @ucia.gov email account. It was in regards to a scholarship program from the CIA to which I had applied, stating that they had liked my online application, and wanted to learn more about me. The problem is that I can't determine, given what I'm looking at, whether it's fraudulent or not. [more inside]

Is my mother potentially complicit in fraud?

My generous, trusting mother was conned out of tens of thousands of dollars (gradually) by a good-for-nothing young cousin over the course of a few years. When my mother ran into financial trouble last year, she sought repayment of these "loans." The cousin insisted that she didn't have to pay back a cent and promptly disappeared. She reappeared last week with a very large check, written directly to my mother's bank, and written by some random guy. I'm worried that the cousin has simply conned somebody else ("please, my home is being foreclosed on, I really need this loan, you can even write it directly to the bank") to cover part of her debt. She isn't talking, and my trusting mother is angry that I'd suggest such a thing. (So a lawyer is out of the question.) Is my mother potentially complicit in fraud by depositing this check?

Being overcharged in an illegal sublet in a rent-controlled apartment. No lease. What do?

I've been living in a month-to-month, no-lease sublet in Manhattan since January. I just found out that' it's a NYCHA rent-controlled apartment, and i'm paying way more than my 'share' of the monthly rent (also, i'm pretty sure subletting a rent-controlled apartment is illegal.) Clearly i'm going to be moving out ASAP. What else should I do? Do I have grounds for financial recoupment? [more inside]

How to determine immigration status of ex-wife after immigration/marriage fraud?

I, a U.S. citizen, married a foreign national some time ago and helped her obtain conditional permanent resident status as a result of the marriage. I subsequently discovered that she had no intent of engaging in a legitimate marital relationship with me and, instead, had married me for the sole purpose of becoming a permanent resident of the United States. Upon this discovery, I filed for an annulment but was instead granted a divorce (details inside). My immigrant ex-wife will soon need to apply (via the I-751 process) to convert her "conditional" permanent resident status to "true" permanent resident status if she wishes to remain in the United States legally (which she does). I do not know whether she will be granted this status, but I would like to find out whether or not she does attain it. Does anyone have any ideas as to how I might find this out? [more inside]
